Art Camp For Women Retreat 2012 ~ Melanie's Books!

 
 
Happy Thursday Everyone!
 
I saved the best post for last!
 
I am so excited to show you the amazing art Melanie created at our art retreat given by Art Camp for Women taught by Carla Sonheim. :)
 
Each morning we started our day with fun & quick drawing exercises to get us warmed up!

 
We used both ink
 
and
 
charcoal!




 
I just LOVE everything Melanie created!

 
Just look at her watercolor blob painting book!
 
It is so amazing!
 
Every time I looked over at her work, I just got more and more inspired to create something 1/2 as special in my book!






 
On the second & final day of the workshop, we created a second postcard book.

 
All we did to make it was take 3 postcards in different sizes, apply a coat of gesso on both sides of each card and a wash of watercolor paint on top of that to create on.

 
Melanie's 3 pages ingeniusly turn from a bear, into a fish and then into a magical gnome!







Simply magical!

Thank you Melly for going with me to this special art retreat!

It was so special!

What FUN things do you have planned this holiday season to do, create or attend?

Please leave us a note and let us know!

We cannot wait to hear all about them!
